WisdomTree U.S. High Dividend Index

The WisdomTree U.S. High Dividend Index is a fundamentally weighted index that measures the performance of companies with high dividend yields selected from the WisdomTree U.S. Dividend Index.  The index is dividend weighted annually to reflect the proportionate share of the aggregate cash dividends each component company is projected to pay in the coming year, based on the most recently declared dividend per share and adjusted for a company’s composite risk score. Composite risk score is an average of three factors: value, quality and momentum.  Companies that score favorably on the composite risk score will have an increase in weights and companies that rank poorly will have a reduction in weights. The Index was established with a base value of 200 as of May 31, 2006.

 

Prior to August 31, 2015, the WisdomTree U.S. High Dividend Index was named the WisdomTree Equity Income Index. 

 

Prior to June 30, 2017, the WisdomTree U.S. High Dividend Index was named the WisdomTree High Dividend Index.
